Product Information

This socket is made out of ceramic porcelain with a premium glossy black glaze and comes with a matching black cap that is also featured on our porcelain cord plug in set. For a clean look, the cap of the socket is secured with included screws from the inside of the socket.

Our porcelain socket is also easily paired with our cloth covered wire sold by the foot. However, if you plan on making a DIY light cord with this socket, we highly recommend using cord grip/strain relief for a secure attachment. Cord grips are sold separately. With all lighting projects and DIY fixture assembly, we always recommend consulting a licensed electrician.

    FAVORITE PRODUCT

    I have a small stained glass shop and use color cord co for all my lamp needs (cord whips, sockets, cord grips, on/off switches.) I like using the black sockets to match the black plug, switch and cord grips. They have excellent customer service and the turnaround is really quick. Everything (including these sockets) works great and looks great. Thanks, you guys!! - Kerbi

    High quality. Straightforward to wire.

    High quality. Straightforward to wire. Soldering the finely stranded wire definitely helps keep everything in place.

    Tinning the ends of the wire definitely helps! Good pro tip! Thanks for your review.
